NYC meetup 5/12-13/2006 with smoking May 10, 2006 2:14 PM   Subscribe

Could there be a NYC meetup, please? Please, can we, huh? Because I am a NYC newbie, and would like to meet you all.

Friday or Saturday would be good for me (May 12 / 13), and somewhere where it isn't a big hassle to smoke things.

I recently discovered a bar that has an outdoor back yard with couches - and ashtrays. It's on 54th st on the west side. But I think it might not be warm enough yet to meet there.

Also, it's a bit short notice....I can't make it either day this weekend.

if you're looking for barbecue, you moved to the wrong city.

short notice. later? please?

Make it Monday or Tuesday, and I can attend. And in fact for Monday, there's already a possible venue.

OK, OK, sorry for short notice. What about later next week, say Thursday May 18? Would that work?

What's wrong with Monday? I want to see TPS's show.

I believe the correct term is "nyewbie"

But shit, I won't be here on Monday, I am in Philly then. That would suck if I initiated a meet up and then didn't get to come, eh? But anyway, everyone should see TPS's show, yeah.

On Thursday the 18th, Banjo and I will be in New York at Avalon to see Architecture in Helsinki.

We'll be about the city for two days after that...

This month is totally meetup crazy. I believe there are more Mefites coming to visit at the end of the month, too. Can't you all plan to come at the same time, so I only have to do one Meet the Noobs meetup?

Kidding, kidding. I love you all. And BITCHES SEE MY SHOW on Monday.

So, hey, Meatbomb, how about you wait until Memorial Day weekend, OK? Friday the 26th- Sunday the 28th, something will be going down.

I'm going to be in NYC on Saturday the 13 -- doing a reading at Coliseum Books at 2 p.m.! Wish I could stick around to see TPS's show...

Yes, The PinkSuperhero, maybe best just wait until then?

See, I'm also a newb at organising meetups.

It be great to finally meet some of you folks. But this is short notice for me too.
posted by Skygazer at 9:06 PM on May 10, 2006

Short notice, although I probably could have managed Saturday. I can't ever do worknights as I live in New Jersey (I know, I know, mock away...)

(BTW, there was a NYC meetup last weekend.)

(Were there pictures? And shoutouts? No? Then I refuse to believe it happened).

Next week, what a coincedence, I'm having a show on Monday!

I know, I know, you can't come, Afroblanco. Just doing a little self-promotion.
